Folding Knife - Tactical, EDC, Utility
Cold Steel Grik 3”, AUS-8A, Black and OD GFN
Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication. New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock & locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it. Of course Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years.
Created by custom knife maker Andrew Demko, the Cold Steel Grik is a pocket-friendly, functional utility and every day carry knife. The Grik’s distinctive modified spear point blade is made from expertly heat treated and cryo-quenched Japanese AUS 8A steel for a perfect balance between edge holding and ease of re-sharpening. A shallow indent in the spine of the blade makes a comfortable thumb stop for leverage when doing hard work, or a rest for your index finger when using the tip for precision cutting. The Grik’s two tone line-grain satin polished blade and contrasting black polymer HTR thumb ramp make the knife really “pop” - making it as easy on the eye as it is to use. But it’s the Grik’s handle that sets it apart! Made from ergonomically contoured GFN with a replaceable and reversible clip, it’s an extremely thin and flat low-profile carry that’s easy on your pockets and incredibly discreet. Furthermore, the Grik’s polymer clip is incredibly comfortable in-hand, negating those “hot spots” that often occur when using a steel-clipped folder for any prolonged length of time. Plus, unlike a steel clip it won’t scratch your paint work or tear the leather seats in your car! Equipped with the Tri-Ad® locking mechanism, that has been proven to offer unsurpassed levels of safety security and strength, the Grik is a tough, practical and functional everyday working tool that you will quickly find to be utterly indispensable.
